Hi all, I recently installed a new hyper 212 cooler. After doing so I downloaded the Intel Burn Tool and ran it a few time to make sure my temps were fine. Now I can't run the WEI program? Any ideas?

are you on an admin account? are you hitting the re-evaluate button?

Actually, I'm selecting the "Rate your computer" button. It's very odd because I have run WEI numerous times on this computer, however I don't have a re-evaluate button anymore. Next to the "Rate your computer" button it says "Your WEI has not yet been established".

I have tried accessing it threw different paths and removed the video card but it still doesn't run.

Thanks for your time.

Who cares about WEI??

Why would you expect a fan replacement to change your WEI?

If you have a standard hard drive in your system, I can tell you right now you have a WEI of 5.9. The WEI is always the lowest of the 4 scores which is usually the hard drive and all mechanical hard drives rate 5.9.

My hardware is listed under my post. I have an SSD boot drive and WD 1TB storage drive. My WIE scores prior to this problem were 7.6-7.9-7.8-7.8-7.6. I'm not really concerned to much, I just want to understand why it won't run.

No idea why it won't run, but it's absolutely useless and pointless anyways.

I mean are you going to run out and make a post bragging about your WEI score? :pt1cable: 

You should only be concerned with the UEI (User Experience Index). If you happy, then it's a 10.

Do my and everyone else here a favor brother. If you don't have anything constructive to say then don't say anything. It's a part of the OS and I want to know why it doesn't work.
I have a right to ask it and I like to understand the reason and causes of why things work or don't work.
If it was useless and pointless then it wouldn't be there. It's just another indicator. No big deal.

Not all mechanical drives rate 5.9. It *could* be anywhere from 1.0 to typically 5.9. A mechanical drive can break 5.9, it's just not likely. I've seen Velociraptors and 10k / 15k SAS drives hit 6.2 / 6.3 before.

Sorry. Back to the real discussion. Run a real benchmark program, not WEI.

This worked. Thanks for nothing.

Copy “%systemroot%\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore” into search bar. Delete all but the most recent then try to run the WEI again.

Its hard for me to select a best answer here because none of you actually addressed the question.
"Geekapproved" just gets angry because people ask ?'s about things "He feels" don't matter.
"Mavroxur" started a discussion about how the HD affects the score.
"Hawkeyee22" attempted to answer with the update video driver answer. Although it wasn't the problem, I award him the best answer because he did at least attempt to answer the question.

This worked;
Thanks
